Where to begin… My girlfriend and I decided to visit Key West for my birthday weekend where I, unbeknownst to her, planned to propose marriage. We booked Chelsea House on a hotel website weeks in advance because the pictures and location looked nice. “Nice” is an understatement.
The location was perfect – a short walk to downtown, but far enough for a peaceful getaway. The grounds and lobby were very well-kept and the staff was extremely kind and helpful. The room was immaculate and had all the Key West charm one hopes for when visiting the island. It had been more than 10 years since either of us traveled to Key West, despite living only 4 hours north in Ft. Lauderdale. It took longer than usual to get there and my proposal plans fell apart, but the hotel, particularly Edy and John, came together for me last minute by placing a bottle of bubbly on ice to await our arrival and create a picturesque engagement, and the hotel did it on the house.
We will stay here every time we come to Key West, and because of the experience, we will wait 10 months instead of 10 years. We recommend you book your stay here as well.By: Julian Geraci December 14, 2015
